LDAP settings

Use this payload to enter settings for connecting to an LDAPv3 directory.

Note: Use the LDAP payload for iOS and OS X user and user group configuration profiles. For more information, see About profiles and payloads and Payload best practices.

iOS devices and Mac computers retrieve contact information from the corporate directories on your company’s LDAPv3 servers. When you search in Contacts, these directories are accessed for completing email addresses as you enter them.

When the Use SSL option is selected and the server’s SSL certificate isn’t issued by a trusted certificate authority known to the devices, use the Certificates payload to add any root or intermediate certificates that are necessary to validate the server’s SSL certificate.

You can add search bases for each directory. You can configure directory connections by clicking the add payload button.
